Wouldn't you take him in a company car or ambulance or something??? Again, this is THE franchise here (not some back-up TE). So much so, that I'm surprised Tomlin didn't drive BB himself.

EXACTLY. He hit the ground and it looked like a shoulder-concrete collision. Not good.

This isn't the president we're talking about. I see no problem with him being accompanied by his wife en-route to the hospital.

That's pretty far out there, man. We could also ban him from having a house with a 2nd floor, so he won't fall down the stairs trying to a snack in the dark of night, ban him from eating shellfish in case of any digestive issues, maybe not allow him to cross streets without a crossing guard present. We're deep in tin foil hat land here.

Remember how cheap the Rooneys are, maybe they didn't want to pay for the ambulance ride.

There's no chance he was "acting" if he freaking left the stadium to get MRI's. We all know by now Ben plays if he can no matter what. To not only go to the locker room, but go to the hospital and leave his team in the middle of a game, speaks volumes about the severity of this injury.

I sincerely doubt this has anything to do with the baby, just because he was leaving with his wife doesn't mean anything. I'm sure she's at almost every game and she's obviously going to go to the hospital with him if he leaves the stadium.

I'm not optimistic at all he'll play against Baltimore or even within the next 2-3 weeks. After what happened with his ankle last year I'm actually scared our whole season could be ruined. This seems like the kind of injury that could really throw him off his game for the rest of the season.

Actually, a lot of the contracts have that kind of language in them. Terrell Suggs had to lie about where he got hurt, for fear of losing a LOT of money.

That aside, in the past, when I have heard about players leaving games, the team doctors usually take the player to the hospital.

And, Yes, I admit: I have my tinfoil hat on... and, your point about that is...??? Oh... wait... I get it. Damn. I've tangented again, haven't i???
